Dave!I had to work every waking minute today. No blog for you!

Well, okay... maybe a little blog for you since Veronica Mars is yet another rerun tonight.

Time for Dave's Entertainment Minute...

Scrubbed! Holy crap! Scrubs used to be one of the most brilliant shows on television. A show you could count on for smart comedy tempered with poignant moments of human drama. But then the new season happened, and all of a sudden it sucks ass... hard. Gone are the wonderful story threads that weave together beautifully every episode. Instead it's just a patchwork mess of sloppy gags that aren't even funny. The back-to-back episodes I just watched off the TiVo were a complete embarrassment to this once-great show. Please, just cancel it now while people still have good Scrubs memories.

Carter! Little Aaron Carter has just released Come Get It: The Very Best of Aaron Carter, which is a greatest hits collection for an artist who has no actual hits. Ordinarily, I wouldn't care. But I ran across the user comments on the iTunes Music Store and laughed my ass off. Over 300 reviews that include such gems as "If crap had a soundtrack, it would be this" and "A disgrace to music. William Hung is 10 times better than Aaron" and "There is no God" and "The Geneva Convention considers it a war crime to listen to this album". I wish I had the guts to actually buy it.

Oh! By some miracle, the self-congratulating Golden Globes wank-fest actually gave out an award that was deserved... the brutally hot Sandra Oh won Best Supporting Actress for her work on Grey's Anatomy. Sweet.

Super! The more information that gets released from the upcoming Superman Returns motion picture, the more anxious I am to see it. While I love the original Superman and Superman II films, the idea of seeing a Superman treatment with modern special effects is just too good. And now I have to wonder... they've finally got momentum going with DC Comics two most notable franchises... Superman and Batman. Who do I have to blow in order to make every comic book lover's dream come true: a Superman & Batman movie? And once Joss Whedon gets his Wonder Woman flick off the ground, how cool would a Superman & Wonder Woman movie be?

Underwhelm! The original Underworld movie was laughably bad. But what's even worse is that I will be lining up at the theater to see the sequel: Underworld Evolution for the sole purpose of seeing Kate Beckinsale run around in tight latex blowing shit up. High entertainment value with no actual entertainment... it's a conundrum of movie physics that compels me.

Not! Ouch. After airing only a single episode, Heather Graham's new sitcom Emily's Reasons Why Not has been canned, and all production has stopped. Given the millions of dollars that ABC pumped into advertising the show, I am experiencing a moment of perverse pleasure. This is the crappy network who cancelled the greatest show ever to air on television (Jeremy Piven's Cupid) after doing everything they could to sabotage it. Suck it ABC dumbasses! You so totally deserve it.

Back to work I go.

    It’s funny you should say that about Scrubs because I watched it last week for the first time in a while and actually really liked it. I never have been a Scrubs fan but I thought those two episodes were pretty good.

  2. Dave2 says:

    Rent the DVDs for the first and second seasons and see how good the show really was! :-)

  3. Ben says:

    I always thought she was rather cute. Heather Graham, that is.

  4. Just found you through I talk 2 Much. Funny blog!

  5. stella says:

    yeah. im quite frightened of Underworld Evolution. So much so, that I refuse to see it…b/c the first sucked so bad.

    I met Nick Carter once. it was AWESOME! actually, we didn’t speak…but there was definately connective eye dialogue. ;-)

  6. Bigstarlet says:

    Ms. Graham can’t catch a break these days, can she?

  7. Dave2 says:

    Truth! Heather can’t seem to catch a break. This is a real pity because back when Scrubs was good, she made some brilliant guest appearances, and has a talent for comedy.

    And yes, she is cute. I now wish that I had watched her show… though they’ll probably air the remaining episodes so I can take a look that way.

  8. Rob says:

    It may be my child like mind. But I still enjoy Scrubs. It was on of the two shows I was excited about with the coming of the new year. Although I have noticed a slight momentum drop in the show after Zach Braff did his movie Garden State.

    Aaron Carter HA!

  9. Kevin says:

    Don’t forget that ABC also canceled Eyes. I think all network execs need to be publicly humiliated. Dance them through the streets so we can all take our potshots.

  10. delmer says:

    I thought Headcases was pretty good; it lasted a mere two episodes.

    And what was the one with Tim Daily (Daly?) in it … Eyes? Spies? Thighs? Maybe something that doesn’t follow that rhyming pattern. That didn’t last long enough.

    Heather’s show must have been a real suckfest to get dropped after one episode. Or really good.

  11. Lisa says:

    *sigh*… Scrubs. What could have been…

    Great blog. You’re funny. But you knew that. :-)

  12. kevintel says:

    I thought the real problem with the original Underworld movie was the beautiful but utterly boring Kate Blandinsdale. I mean, the rest of the movie was the usual post-Matrix action pap, but she really bored me to hell.

    Did you ever see ‘Equilibrium’? That was something similar, a herd of British Matrix make-overs as far as I can tell.

  13. ChillyWilly says:

    Aaron Carter now joins the other mindless pop crap of Backstreet Boys and NSync with greatest hits albums. I didn’t even know he had that many hits.

    Oh well… my g/f loves Scrubs. I watched the episodes with Michael J Fox and it was pretty funny. Zack was also very good in Garden State.

  14. Jay says:

    Even better: A Superman/Wonder Woman porno. Say what you want, but I know everyone out there would watch it.

  15. SJ says:

    Sandra Oh is so hot, I would almost turn gay for her. She was even lovelier than the Tuscan countryside in Under The Tuscan Sun. The scene when she is dancing with her baby is just too precious. Plus, don’t you adore her voice?

  16. i8toomuch says:

    I’ll watch Superman just to drool over that cute guy in red underpants! My oh my…

  17. Kat says:

    Not gonna lie… a little in love with you.

  18. vera says:

    Hi
    Just found your site and love it.
    Great blog
    One problem — I loved Underworld so we are going to have to fight.
    :)
    Vera

  19. Tracy says:

    I have to agree with you on Scrubs…even though I haven’t even voiced that opinion yet with my husband, I have thought exactly the same thing.

    It’s quite sad, really…and completely unexplainable. Did they get a whole new team of writers or what?
